Climate Change Pop-up Museum; 2:30-4:30 PM TOMORROW, Chapell Hall 113

Come join the GC1Y Climate and Chemistry class as they share their final projects; interactive museum exhibits that explain the relationship between combustion, climate change and weather. Details below:

Ever wanted to know what is responsible for Climate Change?

Our Chemistry & Climate GC1Y students will present their third and final assessment between 2:30-4:30 PM on Friday, November 30 in Chapell Hall 113 (behind courtyard).

The Scenario:

Students are museum curators for the local science museum.

Recently their community has experienced unusually hot summers and a lack of rain that has led to drought conditions.

The museum director has tasked the curators with developing an interactive unit for all ages (5-80) that shows the scientific explanation for climate change that addresses the following questions:

  1. Is the planet warming?
  2. How is global warming connected to energy use?
  3. Does global warming affect our local weather? If so, how?

Drop in after the senate meeting or your other Friday afternoon meetings and unwind at an interactive learning experience by our 13 teams of first-year students.

A light refreshment will be available, compliments of the national award-winning Chemistry Club.

We look forward to seeing you there.
Rosalie Richards, Catrena Lisse and Julia Metzker
